When Lauryn Hill sings, an enchanted calm and a sensual sway take hold of the listener. She's a dynamic entertainer who seems to have rolled up the talent of every soul singer on Earth into her being. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill showcases this vocalist's talents for sharp raps and lyrics, celebratory wails, a sense of fun, dramatic lows and an all-round cool vibe. You could take any one of the 15 tracks on this album and be wowed by its intensity and creativity. From the reggae-rap "Lost Ones" to the mournful "Ex-Factor" to the triumphant "To Zion" to the backbone-sliding "Doo Wop (That Thing)," this disc won't ever let you down.

Lauryn Hill won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "Doo Wop (That Thing)" won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song. "Nothing Even Matters" was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. "Lost Ones" was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance. Lauryn Hill is far from miseducated, as her solo debut album proves. With both critical and popular acclaim from her affiliation with the Fugees, Lauryn uses THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL to make a definitive individual statement. The focus here is love: love of self, love of her son, the love of her life, love of hip-hop. Her powerful lyrics and vocal talent put her in a class by herself. One of hip-hop's more strong-willed artists, Lauryn's positivity defies the '90s materialistic rap scene. Although there is much more singing than rapping, Lauryn still covers plenty of hip-hop ground on THE MISEDUCATION, and her music falls into the rap category just as much as it does into R&B. Produced by Hill herself, this album gives us only a few guest artists (D'Angelo, Mary J.) but lots of Lauryn Hill.
